Southfork’s “Ewing Sunset Dinner” lets you love like J.R. and Sue Ellen
Theirs was a romance for the ages?
PLANO If your idea of glamor includes Machiavellian scheming, alcoholism, and philandering, then prepare for the most romantic night of your life. Southfork Ranch in Parker, Texas is offering a special “Ewing Sunset Dinner Package” to celebrate season two of TNT’s Dallas, which premieres on January 28.
For a mere $1,500, the package includes a limousine pickup anywhere in North Texas, a sunset cocktail on the balcony of J.R.’s bedroom, a private mansion tour by an expert docent, and a candlelit steak dinner for two in the swanky Southfork dining room. In addition, lucky couples will receive a $250 gift certificate to the ranch's gift store, Lincolns & Longhorns boutique, which specializes in “upscale Western wear.”
Die-hard Dallas fans already know that much of the original series was shot in LA, rather than on the ranch itself; however, the exterior – made famous in the show’s iconic opening credits and used extensively for establishing shots – has been carefully preserved. Dallas-themed rooms were added on to house memorabilia, like the gun that shot J.R., Lucky’s wedding dress, and video clips from filming. Because of the original series’ impact on television history – it became a record-shattering landmark in nighttime drama – the ranch attracts a whopping 400,000 fans per year.
With the return of TNT’s 2012 reboot on Monday and Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, what better way to pamper one’s own scotch-swilling former Miss Texas than a romantic evening on the very site where Sue Ellen and J.R. Ewing’s son, John Ross, might-or-might-not have been conceived as the result of an affair with Ewing Oil nemesis Cliff Barnes? Romance!
